I'm looking forward to carving a little Hubski slice out of my monthly budget like I do my charities. I think this is a really smart way to support the site. Shows how unique and always evolving Hubski is. I hope everything goes swimmingly.

Thanks. One of my favorite aspects of this model is that someone that cannot afford to donate can still donate by rerouting their earned bits to the site. We shall see what downsides manifest.

I got so excited I forgot I have zero idea how to bitcoin. Would it be possible for someone to teach old farts like myself?

No need to know how. Just go to your profile, follow the 'donation settings' link on the lower right, and decide if your shares give bits, and how they are divided.

Even if we do do this, all the bitcoin jazz will be behind the scenes. We will take care of that.

See, this is how you start blockchaining the future. The average user doesn't give a damn about how a thing works, as long as it works. I'm super supportive of cryptocurrency expansion, but a lot of the proponents of the tech expect too much emotional and intellectual investment of the end user.
